    One of the avenues researched in the quest for the secrets of life, is the creation of a minimalist life form. What is life in its simplest form? Does it evolve? Does it adapt to its environment? And how did ... Read more The post Life is still a black box appeared first on Bio […]
  • Antimicrobial resistance
    The World Health Organization WHO expects antimicrobial resistance to become a persistent problem. A growing number of people develops resistance against antibiotics. In 2050, this might cause an additional 10 million people to die. What can we do to prevent ... Read more The post Antimicrobial resistance appeared first on Bio Based Press.
  • Probiotic building design
    The 2021 Biennale in Venice introduced a new concept into architecture: the probiotic design. From the 19th century onwards, architects and housewives tried to keep the interior of our buildings as clean and non-biotic as possible. But recent discoveries have ...

  • Biodegradable vs. Compostable
    Biodegradable vs. Compostable Biodegradable and compostable are two terms that are often used interchangeably, but they actually have different meanings and implications. Understanding the differences between these two terms is important for making informed decisions about waste management and reducing the impact of human activities on the environment. Biodegradable Biodegradable refers to materials that can […]
  • PLA and anaerobic digestion
    Polylactic Acid (PLA) is a biodegradable, bio-based polymer made from fermented plant sugars. The use of PLA as a feedstock for anaerobic digestion to produce biogas has gained attention as a way to reduce waste and produce renewable energy. Anaerobic digestion is a biological process that occurs in the absence of oxygen, where microorganisms break […]
  • PLA as a feed ingredient for dairy cattle
    Article about study: “Assessment of polylactic acid as a feed ingredient for dairy cattle.” – This study, published in the journal “Animal Feed Science and Technology,” Polylactic Acid (PLA) is a biodegradable and renewable thermoplastic derived from natural sources such as cornstarch, sugarcane, and potatoes. Its environmental sustainability and biodegradability have made it a popular […]

  • LCA of PLA bottle solutions for extended shelf‑life (ESL) milk
    LCA of PLA bottle solutions for extended shelf‑life (ESL) milk The dairy market is one of the most important sectors worldwide, and milk packaging contributes to over one-third of the global dairy packaging demand. The end of life of the PLA bottles is a critical stage of their life cycle, as demonstrated by the fact […]
  • PLA sorting for recycling
    PLA sorting for recycling. Experiments performed at the National Test Centre Circular Plastics (NTCP) Bioplastic, if produced sustainably, can contribute to the transition to a circular economy, especially when these plastics are recycled as much as possible. BioPE and BioPET are automatically sorted and recycled together with fossil PE and PET in the current recycling […]
  • Plant-based bottles (PLA) vs. PET Bottles – Cradle-to-gate LCA and Implications
    introduction: plant-based bottles vs. PET Bottles The global production of plastics exceeded 300 million tons in 2013 [1]. A significant share of these plastics turns to solid waste and cause disposal problems since they are mostly non-degradable in the natural environment [1,2]. The disposal problem, jointly with other environmental concerns associated with petroleum-based plastics, has […]
  • ASTM standard
    ASTM standard D6400 This specification ASTM standard covers plastics and products made from plastics that are designed to be composted in municipal and industrial aerobic composting facilities. The properties in this specification are those necessary to determine whether plastics and products made from plastics will compost satisfactorily, including biodegradation at a rate comparable to known […]
